Women of Style 2020: Vidya Puthenveetil Is Fit And Fabulous

By J.P. Anderson | October 7, 2020 | People

Style is a state of mind and fashion a means of expression, which is all the more important in our rapidly changing world. We check in favorite past NS Women of Style for some words of wisdom.

Vidya Puthenveetil, Medicine Program Director, Rosalind Franklin University


The most amazing thing to happen since I became a Woman of Style was... feeling a sense of gratitude for what life has had in store for me.

This year has taught me... to be more patient and accepting.

What I’m most passionate about right now is… health and fitness.

The biggest surprise of the year has been... how well my children have done with e-learning.

To me, style means... a personal touch reflecting your personality.

My favorite designers of the moment are… Ulla Johnson, Parker, Frame and Alice + Olivia.

The biggest change in my life since I was last featured is... I became a fitness instructor.

I am supporting my local community by... continuing to work in the medical field, and by being an active member of the Catholic Charities’ Women’s Board

My hope for the future is... a safe and healthy life for our world’s children—they are the future.
